Problem A
Fund Raising

Room 9 is raising funds for a tree-planting charity by recycling electronics. They have found a local company that will give them \(\$1\) for each pound of computer e-waste and \(\$2\) for each pound of cell phone e-waste.

The school only has metric measuring tools. Here is what they have gathered to recycle:

Computers

Cell Phones
